Early June, I shared a huge list of things we planned to do this summer. This is my accountability check for what I had on it and what I might have added to it as summer is winding to a close and school is starting soon!
So far our list:
*swimming (done a bunch so far)
*make popsicles (did it a few times!)
*library and bookstore reading programs (We are only doing Half Price Books!)
*Going to the Dells with our Russian Girl Dasha–thinking Circus World and Devil’s lake – (Dasha has come and gone – we never got to this, but the tree of us might go in a week or so)
*Going to Branson (had fun!)
*Going to the Voss’s cabin with my inlaws (Had a nice time and ate WAY too much!)
*crafting (making a red white blue 8×8 album for the Dasha to take home)- Album done – she just loved it!
*make homemade ice cream (I got a machine free from TW a few years ago and we didn’t use it ONCE last summer and found a pretty cool recipe for SnickerDoodle Ice Cream to try!!)We *MIGHT* try the ice cream in a bag recipe! – still on the list to do
*homemade bubbles with dish soap and white corn syrup (Did it – a huge hit!)
*we did a few single day activities thru the local Parks N Rec department(the last one was yesterday)
*summer karate lessons for Sarah(she really liked these and we will do them this fall)
*Visit the local county fair – we did the Dane County fair as a family
*a few family cookouts/pool parties (had a few…)
*4th of July parade – SOOOO hot but we did a pool party after it and cooled down!
*Concerts on the square (free) –missed it!
*health club 3x week (they have a GREAT kid’s play area)…um, I could be a LOT better here…but HAVE had some sort of movement for my body every day!
*Tuesday mornings at the park with her preschool friends (a Drop in thing)A few times, weather permitting, we have 2 more left
*Crafty Kids thru the library – never made it, we were just too craft at home, LOL!
